6:10 am
in yellow and red in southern new castle county delaware, a little bit of a pushing off coast. more rain coming in from the west. let's head outside and even in places where it isn't raining we have damp road conditions and a lot of cloud cover above, there's the commodor barry bridge. here's a look at the rain, again, the heavier stuff appears to be exiting southern new castle county delaware and pushing into northern cumberland county and southern salem county, cape may is in and out of showers and every now and then it's steadier. most of the rain we have in southeastern pennsylvania is lighter, but it's more widespread and extending with light sprinkles and showers northern bucks and northern montgomery county and half of chester county and more stuff on the way, it looks like the morning commute generally speaking is going to be damp with on and off showers we get a midday lull i'll show you that in a minute. 70 in allentown. 672 in wilmington, 75 -- 72 in
6:11 am
wilmington. 75 in cape may. on and off rain through the rush hour. midday, cloudy and sunny breaks possible. a lull in the rain. unfortunately for the last couple of days, the model wants to redevelop additional showers in the afternoon. after 1:00 p.m., look out for this. not raining everywhere at once, but some of you could see this. later this evening, it's done at the shore, we might squeeze out late day sunshine in philadelphia. we can kick the clouds over on the other side of i-95 quick enough. up in the lehigh valley, 82 degrees, spotty showers and cloudy skies, and late day sun. at the shore, 78 degrees, ocean temperature, 78. very mild. rip currents in the water, cloudy skies for the most part and on and off showers, not the best beach day. 82 is the high in philadelphia. not as warm as recently. mostly cloudy, humidity dropping later in the day, showers in the interim off and on straight through the afternoon.

6:13 am
does when it gets close to us because of the blocking high pressure. changes with the hermine track is shifting westward and riding up the east coast it will be here saturday into sunday and monday. coastal flooding and erosion a likely possibility. the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, 82 is the high, pop-up showers off and on through the day and into the afternoon. thunderstorm here or there, looks like we'll dry in time for the eagles. comfortable tomorrow, beautiful day on friday, high of 82. saturday things start to change, increasing clouds and the possibility of rain at night. the best chance over by the coast with periods of heavy rain, but it depends on the track. sunday, windy, periods of rain possible, but does that mean the entire area? maybe, maybe not, depends on how close the storm is. monday labor day is a day of improvement. but that depends on the track.

6:39 am
spots, especially in south jersey and delaware. taking a look outside, even where it isn't raining, the surface is wet from earlier showers. in philadelphia we're beginning to build light rain back into the picture. here's the overview we have heavier stuff pushing away from atlantic city and cape may. there's another band in dover, delaware, and southern new castle county. most of the heavier stuff is in cumberland county and heading toward cape may. a little blip up toward the ac expressway. all the precipitation in the northern and western suburbs and philadelphia is fairly light. there is steadier precipitation coming through harrisburg and lancaster. basically you'll be in and out of the this sort of pattern through the morning rush hour. 74 degrees is the current temperature. the dewpoint in the low 70s. it's muggy as you step outside. winds out of the south at 5 miles per hour. here's future tracker 6 latest model run. it looks like between now and 9:00 a.m. you're still a little
6:40 am
damp and midday at 12:00 fairly cloudy, but a lull in the precipitation. later this afternoon we have a chance of redeveloping showers. at new time will it be raining anywhere, it will be spotty, but brief downpours are possible. 7:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., most of the action is by the coast. we'll squeeze out sunshine in parts of the region, we'll see about that. temperatures will not be as high, in the 70s through midday. in the afternoon, high of 82. rain in the morning another batch in the afternoon. hopefully sun comes back. 82 in allentown. 82 in philadelphia. close to that all the way through the i-95 corridor and upper 70s down the shore. the shore not a great beach day and clouds and spotty showers and heavy surf and rip currents if you're on the beach you can look at temperatures in the 70s. down to the tropics we go all eyes on tropical storm hermine
6:41 am
which did form yesterday and expected to develop into a category one hurricane later today and tonight. notice the change in this track, a couple of days ago it was the dinners between tampa and jacksonville, yesterday was farther north now farther north because it looks like the front coming through up here is going to get off the coast before it catch it and kick it off the coast. that means the storm will hug the coast and get pushed back in thanks to a blocking area of high pressure into the weekend. saturday and sunday we'll be dealing with the storm off the coast, the most likely track has irrelevant off coast it will give us rain. the spaghetti plot models are sticking with the same idea. you can see a lot of them don't know what to do with the storm sunday into monday because of the blocking high pressure.
6:42 am
will come up the coast it will be in our vinlt saturday night into -- vicinity saturday night and sunday. we have heavy rain and wind and coastal flooding and beach erosion. the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, 82. bright sunshine. tomorrow, 82, low humidity, really nice. increasing clouds on saturday, if the track of hermine is closer to us, we'll see rain saturday night and pedestrians of rain on sunday and windy conditions sunday. monday, labor day day of improvement, high of 82 and sun coming back, it will depend on the track of hermine. i will say that hermine appears to be farther off the coast than last night. hopefully the impact will be minimal, but we'll have to keep our eyes on it. >> 6:42 a.m., a crash along i-95 injuries firefighters and
